Beach Belle rare..? And all chewed up...?
« on: February 11, 2012, 04:41:38 AM »
This is just upsetting on my part.
 :yikes:
Earlier this week dad and I went out pony hunting at the second hand stores and I ended up grabbing a few really sad looking G3 ponies to take home and clean up. I picked up a nice little blue pony with long hair thinking I could fix it up and add her to my collection and bait the worse off pony. When I got home I realized that the pony's poor face and front hooves were all chewed up. I placed her aside and was thinking about baiting her and thought I should do some research first since I had never seen the pony before.
Then on Strawberry Reef I found out I had Beach Belle and that she was valued around $75.
Ugh.

Just look at this poor girl!

I don't want to bait her now that I know her value, but those bite marks are just so hard to look at (that and her hair is super dry and needs to be fixed).

The bite marks are really weird too... Looks like a small dog or a cat chewed on it..

Well the dry hair can easily be fixed with a little conditioner, but those chew marks... :yikes: I'm sure she'd still be wanted by a G3 collector though, even with the chew marks ;)

Yes I don't think she looks too bad!
I had no idea Beach Belle was worth so much, how come?

She doesn't look too bad! Just use a hair straightener at around 180F for a little while and her hair will be fine. n_n
Also, why IS she so much? I saw her on eBay a few times for less than that but never thought to look twice. :o

I don't think she looks so bad either; I'm sure there's a g3 collector out there that wants her.

She's HTF and expensive because she's a limited-release g3; was only available at Menard's Hardware Stores along with Caribbean Delight - and Menards stores aren't nation-wide, either (midwest only, if I'm not mistaken.)  I also think the SLH g3s are generally popular and those two have *always* been popular.

Congrats on your finds; she's still a pretty pony!  :)

Hmmm... Well if G3 collectors may still be interested in her I might consider selling her once I fix her hair up.

i recommend just try condition or fabric softener and gently comb the hair out, let it air dry around a hoof or neck. Don't use heat on synthetic hair if it can be helped, as some collectors won't like it. 
She doesn't look that bad. I think you could get maybe $10 to $20 for her.

If I hadn't just bought a MIB set, I'd buy her from you.  She is hard to find and I don't think the chew marks are too horrible.  Least she's not missing chunks of plastic, lol.

Aww, poor girl. At least the chew marks don't look too bad, I've found ponies that have holes chewed into them! (Hopefully from a pet, not a person!). I'm sure you would be able to find a buyer if you decide to sell her :)

Once I clean up her hair I'll probably take some more pictures and see if someone will offer. I won't expect too high for her since she does have damage, but I think she might make a collector happy.

I think so too.  She is one of the more sought after G3 ponies and looks beautiful regardless of of her animal attack XD  I agree with getting $10-$20 mark.  Maybe just do a really good hairdo and some nice pics?
